I'd like to capture a rainbow
and stick it in a big box so that,
anytime you wanted to,
you could reach in and pull out
a piece of sunshine.
I'd like to build you a mountain
that you could call your very own
a place to find serenity
in those times when you
feel the need to be closer to yourself...
I'd like to be the one
who's there when you're
lonely or troubled or you just need
someone to hold on to.
I'd like to do all this and more
to make your life happy.
But, sometimes, it isn't easy to do
the things I would like to do
or give the things I would like to give.
So... until I learn how to
catch rainbows and build mountains,
let me do for you which I know best...
..Let me simply be your friend.
